Something very sick is at work when a country cannot endure a prolonged period of peace. Something is dreadfully wrong when a people cannot abide leaders who promise to promote peace, instead conferring power on the most vicious and psychopathic who promise to be “strong”. Something is very wrong with a people that fears peace movements and applauds governments that vitiate them. Something is wrong with a people that cannot look at its history and its mistakes. Something is wrong when a people defends its government no matter what evils it perpetrates.

That something is fear. There is too much fear in the land, deeply buried in American hearts. There is fear of enemies of all sorts and descriptions: foreign enemies, minorities, various religions, anarchists and anarchy, terrorists, communists, nonconformists, health insecurity, job losses, drugs, gang violence, severe weather, climate change, losses of all kinds, illness, dying and death. No fear is too small not to be the foundation for some crusade or war.

New Allegiance

Evangelism is inherently political action. The gospel calls people give their ultimate allegiance to Jesus, not the nations state. It proclaims a kingdom that spans the entire world. It transcends ethnicity, culture, gender, economics and political affiliation.

Nation State

When Christians forget that they are fundamentally citizens of God's kingdom, not the nation state, they become arrogant or presumptuous in political matters.

God is King

The modern world does not want to face the challenge of theocracy, the news that God actually has become king. What does it look like when God becomes king. That is the question the gospel attempts to address.

When God becomes king, he will put things to rights. He does not send in the tanks, he sends in the weak and the broken-hearted.
